Author: |

The facelifted Ford Focus is now available in China, with minor stylistic variations from the European model.

The hatchback has a length of 4,401 mm while the sedan has a length of 4,664 mm, both with the same 2,705 mm wheelbase.

The Chinese 2022 Ford Focus was leaked in February, but the latest press photographs provide a more detailed look at the changes. The grille in the Chinese Focus blends with the headlamps providing a more forceful appearance. In addition, the LED graphics are unique. The black trim on the grille and intakes also contrasts with the body-colored front bumper wings.

The S Edition adds high-gloss black wheels and a black rear spoiler to the rear end, as well as a significantly sportier diffuser with dual exhaust pipes.

Inside, there's a B&O audio system and the Ford Co-Pilot360 ADAS suite, which allows for Level 2 autonomous driving. Black and blue upholstery, carbon-fiber design and suede-like trim, blue seatbelts, and a perforated leather steering wheel with red stitching are all options depending on the model. An 8-inch digital instrument cluster and a 12.3-inch infotainment touchscreen with SYNC + Zhi Mo infotainment are also included.

The Chinese Focus is powered by a 1.5-liter four-cylinder EcoBoost engine that produces 178 horsepower and up to 270 Nm of torque in Overboost mode.

The engine is paired with a dynamic six-speed automated transmission that offers three driving modes.

The upgraded Focus can reach 100 kilometers per hour in 7.9 seconds.
